    That's why we all are different...some bikes get stickers...the others do not.
    Some folks peel all manufacturer logos off all their stuff...I'm not one of them.

    And my GS does seem to run better covered with stickers ( I'd have a sarcastic smilie of some sort here, but they are not working today!)

    Occasionally I go to big biker events like Daytona Bike Week. There are outlaw souvenir venders every where. That's where I get a lot of my BMW patches and pins. Ain't nothin like dealin with the black market. No worry about what's legal or copyrighted. Cash talks and you no what ....... . Some years, I grow a beard and I go to Bike week as a biker. Usually take my oldschool '74 R90. It's black and it matches all my black leather that is liberally festooned with lots of patches and pins. I hang out at the biker bars on Main and the newer bigger venues out off I 95. Hang out with them all week. I've gone back the next year as a Euro motorcylist to the same bars, with the same bikers , this time shaved and in my 'Stich, full helmet. They don't even recognize me, untill I tell'em it's me.

    BMW Patches

    I have had very good luck finding all sorts of patches at Harley Davison biker rallys. Including BMW patches.

    My problem is I have not found a jacket worth putting them on as of yet.

    Send me a private message since a few "Members" seem to have a problem w/ start up vendors offering service to fellow members.

    I know what it is. And some levels such as this quite ridiculous.

    Nah. Ya try to help some folks some times and others just suck the joy out of it.
    I'm hardly gonna get rich makin' a patch for a guy lookin' for one over 10 years...

    But hey... Rules is rules as the guys who decry "less Government in my life" always seem to do...

    And no... I'm not addressing any one person or Mod. It's rampant through out this "club".
